I am not a morning person. So it's a pretty big deal if I make breakfast. Ha! I have my kids pretty well trained to get themselves dressed and make breakfast. It's awesome.
But every now & then I surprise them.
One day we just jumped on bubble wrap for 30 minutes.
It was crazy fun.
Sunflowers. Yellow. Roses. Mason jars. Happiness.
One day Andy and I spent half a day looking at wood flooring. We snuck a Starbucks date in there. It was fun.
P.S. I hate carpet. Hate.it.
We had dinner with friends, so I made brownie fruit pizza for dessert. The fruit is glazed with homemade apple jelly one of my AHG girls gifted me with! It was the perfect summer dessert.
I had a rough day one day. Because some days with 3 kids are rough. So Andy sent me to Starbucks and Target. He's a good man.
I bought Abby a Caboodle. Oh how I wish I had kept my Caboodle. It was mint & peach! I loved it.
Then our refrigerator died. It sucked. I mean really sucked. Like hours of painful fridge shopping with 3 kids kind of sucked. But now we have a beautiful new fridge. And the ice maker works. So that's fun.
I still walk in the kitchen and am like whoa what is that?! Oh it's our fancy new fridge.
Now all our other appliances suck in comparison.
Oh this little boy has my heart.
Love this pj and rain boots look.
And how he purposefully closes his eyes for pictures.
These guys. Destroying back yard peace across the burbs. So funny.
Love meeting up with BFF's for pool days.
We could totally be a Sonic commercial.
We would sell lots of slushies.
I'm sure of it.
This boy turned 9. That's so crazy to me.
He loves Minecraft, Legos, Settlers of Catan, Snickers bars, Sour Patch Kids, meat lovers pizza, reading, riding his bike, and his dog Latte.
Then we went to a cute little homemade ice cream shop. Ab had strawberry basil ice cream...she ate it all. Then said she doesn't really care for basil.
Andy and I went to the Darius Rucker concert at Fiddlers Green.
It was so fun. I love concerts. I love the people watching. I love the loudness. I love the concession stand food. I love all of it. And I really love Darius Rucker. So much heart. Love his love for southern hospitality.
Now to raise up Abby to dress conservatively...because wow...girls need to know that less coverage is not beautiful. Self-respect and confidence is beautiful.
Love that our house is where the neighborhood kids gather...
We added a couple new accessories this time! Vintage strawberry stuff makes me think of my grandma and makes my heart happy.
Andy added trim, and I painted it! Such a clean look.
